My client are a small, long established family business with several ongoing projects in around East Anglia, both residential and commercial.

The work is varied and the successful applicant will be involved in all aspects of the development process from design to occupation and ongoing warranty/maintenance. Although we are a small firm, we undertake the vast majority of design work in house on our BIM software (Archicad).

We are looking for a good, sensible, industrious, honest contract manager to work in our office and we hope to find someone with much of the following non-extensive skill set:

  • Preparation of "builder's" BOQs (Bills of quantities) (familiarity with Planswift software would be beneficial but if not, willingness to be trained in use of Planswift is essential)
  • Tender analysis and order placement for materials and sub-contractors
  • Negotiations with statutory authorities
  • Reconciliations
  • Normal IT skills and familiarity with word, confidence with Excel (not just data entry!)
  • Good telephone manner and the ability to apply charm and winkle best prices out!
  • A "do it today" mentality
  • Some relevant site experience along the way
  • Tidy approach to work
  • Happy to "muck in" with what needs doing
  • Confidence to work autonomously
  • Preparation of H&S documentation
